"This book, which represents the conclusions of the Stanford Task Force on Preventive Force, raises critical questions surrounding the use of preventive force: what are the dangers and limitations of relying on preventive force in dealing with security threats? How does preventive force differ from preemption and other uses of force considered lawful? ... The book describes current threats and reviews the extent to which international organizations and states regard them as justifying increased reliance on preventive force. It examines the different types of preventive actions currently used in international practice and evaluates these actions in light of United Nations standards."--Back cover
Taking on Iran : strength, diplomacy, and the Iranian threat by Abraham D Sofaer( Book )

Abraham D. Sofaer argues that US policy toward Iran cannot safely be restricted to a strategy that considers only the two high-risk, costly, and potentially infeasible options of a preventive attack on Iran's nuclear facilities or containing a nuclear-armed Iran. Instead, the United States should respond forcefully to Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) aggression, enhancing its credibility and increasing the likelihood that Iran will negotiate in earnest. The United States must also be prepared to engage Iran in a disciplined manner, avoiding disabling preconditions and adopting the negotiating practices used successfully by the United States when dealing with the Soviet Union during the 1980s
